Conference Re-Cap through Octo-Pus in Boots!

This weekend at NESCBWI Conference ’12 was incredible. I had a wonderful time visiting with everyone. Reconnecting with old friends and getting to meet a few folks face to face for the first time after being long time twitter friends.

Some of these wonderful people kindly gave me their interpretations of Octo-Pus in Boots check out the contributions received at this conference!

  1. What a fabulous idea Casey! I love all the drawings (and the poem) — it’s quite the all-star cast of artists, and what a nice way to bring a bunch of artists together. Now I want to draw my own Octo-pus in boots… hmmm…
